I'm calling this the Mannings first mission & vision trip for a number of reasons:
1) We will be serving alongside Crisis Response who is partnering with Beacon EFC of NJ and Salem EFC of Staten Island; Mark as a jobsite supervisor to the volunteer teams and I will be serving the volunteer coordinators, Jen & Kat, as their assistant and helping anyway I can.
2) This will be a cross-cultural experience for Mark and I as he's a midwest country boy and I'm a southern city girl. We're looking forward to seeing how big God is and how He is at work in these places.
3) Mark and I have decided to pursue the long term application process with ReachGlobal! This trip up to the northeast will continue to give us vision for how Mark and I can serve as a married couple with ReachGlobal Crisis Response.
4) Mark and I will get to share with Bethlehem Church in NJ on Sunday April 27th. Please pray for us as we share in both services, with the mission council, and with the youth group how God is at work in the ministry and in our lives. Please pray that God would speak through us to encourage this church body of how their partnership has been vital to furthering God's Kingdom purposes.
You can stay tuned on how things are going on the blog. If you are in the area, give us a call or email! We'd love to see you!
God bless yall!
Mark & Katie :)
